and Pinchot Believed to Be
W orking fo r Its Defeat.
Washington, D. C.—Friends of the
Borah-Jones three-year homestead bill
are greatly alarmed over the delay of
the conference committee in reaching
an agreement, and are fearful that
this long delay will make it possibe
for Mr. Fisher, the secretary of the
Interior, to defeat the measure in one
way or another.
This bill, after
passing the senate and then passing
the house in an amended form, was
referred to the conference committee
on March 27 and since then no actual
steps have been taken by this commit
tee towards bringing in an agreement.
It was fully expected by friends of
this bill that the conference commit
tee, appointed to reconcile the differ
ences between the senate and house
bills, could get together in a few days
—a week at the outside—but seven
weeks have elapsed and the conference
committee is no nearer an agreement
than the day it was appointed. This
situation is somewhat surprising, in
view of the fact that every member of
the conference committee voted for
the bill and is supposed to favor re
ducing the homestead period from five
years to three, and to favor giving
homesteaders leave of absence for five
months each year.
